Tara Lisa Foley
Tara received her BA from Sarah Lawrence College in NYC, studying psychology and art. After spending 4 years in Japan and India, a time she credits as being highly inspirational and prolific, she later returned to the US where in addition to producing her own work she also teaches art to inner city youth at the Boys and Girls Club of San Francisco.
She counts her participation in San Francisco’s Low Gallery exhibition ‘Lost Civilization’ as one of the most important for her. Through it she began working on the collaborative ‘Excavation Project’ by which multi-media artists (re)create remains of extinct civilizations through ‘excavation’.
Tara works in gouache on paper through which she addresses ideas of science fiction, psychology and the unconscious. (bio)
